Family Practice will give you the broadest experience; after that you can specialize.

I agree, family medicine is broad and you get to care for patients of all ages, from a couple days old days to over 100 years old! I think it's a good way to figure out where you'd like to specialize.
Family! I started in internal med, then general surgery, now I am in peds. Starting in something so broad can really help you understand what you like and where you feel most comfortable in.
I agree with family practice being a good start if you are unsure where you want to work, however in the interview ASK what the patient demographic is like. Some are a good mix, but the one I worked at was mostly geriatric, rarely pediatric.
I started in Occupational which was great. Now I am in an Internal/Family clinic, however we do not see peds. I've learned so much and it is fast paced too which keeps it interesting.
